Monoprice Lightning-to-USB cables: Plenty of companies make budget alternatives to Apple’s $19 and $29 Lightning-to-USB cables. But most of the cheap knock-offs aren’t Apple-certified, which means they don’t have the official circuitry inside and they haven’t passed Apple’s testing protocols. (This isn’t just a name-brand-versus-generic debate. As many people have discovered, some third-party cables no longer work under iOS 7 because the new OS is stricter about verifying that connected accessories and cables contain the official circuitry.) Monoprice, true to its reputation, offers a wide variety of options (from 4 inches up to 10 feet long) at budget prices ($12 to $14), but unlike much of the competition, Monoprice’s versions are all MFi-certified.
